Agent cools Gattuso move talk

12 June 2009 02:20
Gennaro Gattuso's agent has denied suggesting that the Italy international could follow coach Carlo Ancelotti to Chelsea. Earlier in the day, Andrea D'Amico was quoted as saying the 31-year-old midfielder was unhappy at AC Milan following Ancelotti's departure to Stamford Bridge. D'Amico even suggested that his client could be interested in a move to the Premier League himself. However, he has now back-tracked after claiming Gattuso will be staying with the Rossoneri. He said: "I have never said that Gattuso will leave. There could be offers for him by clubs because who wouldn't want a player like Gattuso? "Rino was saddened to see Ancelotti leave because he has a special relationship with him. His mission is at Milan and he wants to stay."
